Typical Pedestrian Accident Injuries
A collision between a person and a vehicle will never end well for the person. When we receive a call from a potential client who has been hurt in a pedestrian accident, we know that we will have to work diligently and tirelessly because they have likely suffered life-changing injuries. The opposing insurance company will be doing the same because they don’t want to take accountability for such severe injuries and the costs that follow.
In a pedestrian accident, terrible injuries can occur, such as:
- Multiple broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Internal organ damage
Is the Driver Always Liable?
Does a pedestrian vs. car accident automatically mean that the driver involved is liable? No, that is not exactly how the right-of-way works. You might have been told that the pedestrian always has the right-of-way, but this is untrue. There are many situations in which a pedestrian can become liable for an accident.
Pedestrians must not do the following:
- Cross without a crosswalk if a crosswalk is available.
- Walk into the street from a concealed position.
- Step into traffic when vehicles are immediately approaching.
- Travel along a raised highway or freeway.
If you are being partially blamed for the pedestrian accident, don’t panic. Our pedestrian accident attorneys in Folsom can investigate the circumstances of your accident to see how to minimize your liability as much as possible. In California, pure comparative negligence rules mean you can file a claim against any party that was at least 1% liable for your damages, but your recovery will be reduced by a percentage equal to your liability.
What Is Included in a Pedestrian Accident Settlement?
We want to get you the most financial compensation for your injuries as possible. Money can’t undo your troubles, but it can help ensure that you don’t have even more problems in the future because bills are adding up. With our decades of collective legal experience, we know how to calculate damages accurately and file against all viable insurance policies. This gives you the highest chances of getting all of your damages covered before hitting an insurance cap.
Monetary compensation paid to you by the driver should cover:
- Past and future medical bills
- Pain, suffering, and traumatization
- Past and future lost wages
- Permanent or lasting disability
